Spring Memories Washi Tape Set by @journal.away

Learn more about Anna's creative process for designing our newly released beautiful Spring Memories 5-piece washi tape set!

How magical is this set? Anna’s "Spring Memories” is inspired by a beautiful moment between you and your diary, away on a field of flowers, in a far corner of the world. Writing out the first memories of the spring.


Anna's Design Process & Story

What was the inspiration behind this design?

My main inspiration was the idea of an old diary or a novel laying down on a springy flower field. I wanted to create something sweet, romantic and a little bit vintage.

Watch the video below to see the process!

What was your process for creating the design?

I started by gathering lots of pictures that captured the feeling I wanted to convey. Light color combinations, pictures of flowers and fields, notebooks, diaries, vintage style decorations etc. Then I started to draft out the collection itself. I wanted it to offer some variation, to be useful for a bullet journaler using the tapes in their notebook or just to be pretty designs for a hobbyist to use wherever they want.

I started with some rough sketches, flower and leaf illustrations and then scanned them on a computer where I created some more drawings digitally, and then started to combine all the different elements and bring everything together.

How would you describe your style as an artist?

I think my style changes a lot, but it almost always has some minimalistic aspects. I prefer muted colors, symmetrical designs and calm aesthetics.
